Oh that's too bad. Maybe if you call some places they might have it. It's really nothing special though. A-line strapless dress with a sweetheart top...you will easily be able to find something similar.

7:30 wedding? There are the Disney inconsistencies again. If I knew nighttime was an option I would have done it. I thought 5pm was the latest you could do SBP.

P.s. Thanks for the tip about you officiant I have already book marked him - he sounds perfect for us!
Thanks I really loved Morocco. I would recommend though that you enter through the backstage. Again, this is something there are inconsistencies with. I've read that other people have been told walking through International Gateway was not an option. Well, it was for us. In fact that is what we were going to do. Then about a month before I decided I should probably arrange transport there in case it's raining. Towncars there were I believe $25 each and they seat 4. It's worth it to enter through the backstage...I think it makes it more "magical".

Yea again the officiant is such a personal thing. Some people are religious and want a minister or whatever. I know a lot of the ministers do non-religious ceremony's, but we wanted someone totally "neutral"...so again, if that's what you want, Ron is perfect.

We are considering Studio222 and Ron so I am glad to see you enjoyed working with them!
Thanks! I'm glad you are considering Studio 222. They are an affordable option for people who want a modern style. Their 4 hour package was $1200 for us. We also added an a la cart hour that was $380, I believe, bringing the grand total to 5 hours. If you are an escape bride, 4 hours is plenty. I just wanted them to photograph the spread at Bluezoo which is why we had to add the extra hour.

How is the Bluezoo? Like price-wise and taste? I have been thinking about it as well, but I do not eat fish, and it looks like a lot of seafood!

Your pics look stunning!! I cannot wait to read more
Thanks I loved Bluezoo. It's specialty is seafood, but they have other stuff as well. For our main entrees the choices were tuna, salmon, beef, and chicken. One of my sisters had the beef and she said it was amazing. My mom got the chicken...I'll have to ask her how it was, but she didn't complain!

Like I've said before the private room has a $1200 minimum. Our grand total was about $1900 I was stupid though. I see that before I said we had 4 courses. Well I forgot about one. We actually had 5!!! I'll talk about them in the the TR later. But suffice it to say that it was way too much food. It was $102/person. If I could do it over, I would have asked for just 2 courses. The cheapest option on their private dining menu is $55/person, so you can easily make it cheaper.

Now we had 12 people, so the food was around $1200...but that doesn't take into account tax, the automatic gratuity, and of course the killer...drinks. I think each mixed drink was like $11-12 each and most people got 2 each. I'm fine with that, but it made the dessert party bar a waste of money. Again, I'll go into more details later.

Thanks! I paid for the DP photographer. They did not substitute. The substitute I got was a honeymoon shoot inside Epcot. I believe I've read though that they no longer do any substitutions. This is the one thing I HATE about DFTW. Our Disney Photographer was a very nice, cool guy. The pictures might be fantastic...the thing is that I have no idea. Yes I am aware you can now look at portfolios and request people, but there is still no guarantee you'll get them. I would definitely never do an in-park wedding and give up the ability to choose my own outside photographer.

The DP photography was $350, and then we paid another $395 for the high-res disc. The disc will include our DP and honeymoon shoot photos. Overpriced, but what can I do?

Thanks! Trust me I don't want to leave you hanging. Once I get the photos you will see the fastest TR in the history of the boards. Since it's summer vacation I have nothing but free time and will probably be able to pound the whole thing out in a day or two

Thanks I hope there are some good pics of the back of the dress because it was pretty detailed.

Thanks I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures either! The photopass pictures are scheduled to arrive June 24, so at least I'll have something to tide me over.

Thanks a bunch SBP is such a fantastic location, I am so happy that I picked it. I'm sure you've already read it, but just in case, this is my favorite wedding trip report ever and is the one that basically cemented my decision to have the ceremony at SBP

I really thought I posted on here but I just tried finding my post and I can't find it so I guess I didn't. I read through your PJ and your teaser pictures are amazing. Your dress is gorgeous. Donald and Daisy are adorable. I can't wait to read more. And if I did post already and say the same thing, sorry... I've lost my mind I think. Oh, and I'm a teacher also, so I know the pain of having to plan vacations for summers etc.

Thanks so much Also, Hey fellow teacher! I hope you are enjoying your summer vacation! It's a great job but the vacation caveat does suck. I get really jealous when I read trip reports about walking on the rides in the middle of the day in February, free dining, Garden festival, Food/Wine festival, etc...and here I am planning my commando, rope drop warrior trips during the summer and Christmas

Thank you so much! It means a lot that people compliment the photography. I hope that it all turns out as nice as the teasers.
